Martin O'Leary

Martin is the technical officer for the State Herbarium.

His interests are primarily focused on Acacia but also the Myrtaceae as these are his curatorial responsibilities with the Herbarium collection.

After 25 years of experience with the vegetation of South Australia, Martin's interest is flora in general, such as their taxonomic relationships, distribution, biology, cultivation and ethnobotany.

Martin has previously worked on rare and endangered species and their propagation through seed germination, cuttings and tissue culture.

Martin gives talks to community groups such as the Australian Plant Society, Friends of the Botanic Gardens and conservation parks.
